The country's beauty is in no way inferior to holiday hot spots like Portugal or Spain and - besides its divine beaches - boasts a wealth of fascinating culture, architecture and history. The child-friendly atmosphere will make you and your family feel right at home and you'll find there's plenty to do and discover for toddlers and teens alike.
Dubrovnik combines a Mediterranean flair with Slavic influences. And the UNESCO-listed, car-free Old Town is embraced by the centuries-old Walls of Dubrovnik. Venture up those walls and you'll be presented with the most beautiful views across the townscape.
Check out the Sun Gardens Dubrovnik, our top recommendation for a family-friendly stay. The hotel lies about 11 kilometres from the city and features stylish, contemporary rooms with the dedicated Marco Polo Kids' Club to keep your little ones busy for hours. Take the kids out for a day to Lokrum Island, which is just a stone's throw away from Dubrovnik Old Town. You'll find it less crowded than Dubrovnik's beaches and there are exciting rock coves and botanical gardens for the kids to explore as well.
Watch the children run and play through the grounds before hopping in the pool to splash about. Or head to the beach for some fun in the sea. There is also a Marco Polo Kids' Club that will keep the children entertained all day. There is also a kid's sports academy so the little ones are entertained, while parents can relax in the Spa and Wellness area.
Take the family to Rovinj and visit the stunning aquarium for a lesson on maritime life or go stargazing at the Višnjan Observatory, located directly beneath the region's clearest sky. We recommend a stay in the elegant Hotel Monte Mulini where you can enjoy the spacious family suites and four outdoor swimming pools. There are also hundreds of kilometres of well marked cycling routes, making it the ideal destination for an active cycling holiday with the whole family. The peninsula boasts some fantastic, child-friendly beaches along its coastline and there are plenty of exciting caves to explore with your little ones
The Split is Croatia's hotspot, with plenty of activities and luxury hotels, this is a destination made for family holidays. With an abundance of history, culture and fantastic foods, the Split really has it all. Venture into Croatia's capital city of Split and visit the UNESCO cathedral or spend your time relaxing at the pool of one of our luxury hotels.
Book a variety of rooms so everyone can have their own bed while being close to mum and dad. Enjoy delicious dishes and lots of options for little ones at the restaurants and easily explore Split.
